right. that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl that he is, in fact, a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz was born in california to an american mother, has dual citizenship. and following that report, senator cruz released a statement renouncing his canada citizenship. he says now the dallas morning news that i have dual citizenship, i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should only be an american. it's odd for me to say about a guy who i disagree with on many points, he couldn't be more right. the irony, of course, it mirrors the phony scenario of those who have been arguing to this day that president obama was born overseas, mostly in kenya and not eligible to be president. he was born to an american mother in the state of hawaii that was actually in america, by the way, but the birthers are all but silent when it comes to ted cruz. cruz has already visited the important presidential primary states of iowa and south carolina a

"to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an

the stand. he still has not cross examined any of them. nbc's mark potter is outside the courthouse in texas. he joins us. mark, that was one of the other points of outrage for some people is that hasan would be in a position to cross examine some of the very people he's accused of shooting down that day. he's not done so so far. what else are you seeing in court today? >> reporter: well, aside from the argument you were talking about, it will go to an appeals court, it was very dramatic testimony as soldiers and former soldiers took to the stand to describe what happened on november 5th, 2009, when 13 people were killed here, 31 were injured in this rampage shooting at a processing center. soldiers, former soldiers told of seeing others being shot, hearing them scream, watching them die, being shot themselves. it was very, very dramatic. one of them, staff sergeant michael davis, said that he heard a young woman screaming out, my baby, my baby, my baby. and we know that a 21-year-old soldier, francesca velez, private first class from chicago was shot and killed. she was nine weeks pregnant.
to block texas' new voter i.d. law. it was implemented after the supreme court back in june struck down a key provision of the 1965 voting rights act. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams joins us live. it's making headlines. >> it escalates the battle. the center piece is the supreme court's decision striking down the heart of the voting rights act. before the court ruled texas had to get preclearance for any changes on the election law and the federal court said no both to texas changing its voter i.d. law and redrawing its district lines for congressional and legislative districts. after that the justice department is pursuing new courts. we can't stop you under the old voting rights act but we'll use a new section to claim this voter i.d. law is unconstitutional. a written statement says we will not allow the supreme court's decision to be determined as open season for the states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. what the court is saying -- or the justice department now is, rather, saying it's unconstitutional on its face and it's also asking the court in texas
